Still Life With Books

Jackson's Painting Prize 2023
40 x 30 cm

“Inspired by the still lifes of Giorgio Morandi this composition was made out of books I was reading that year. And I wanted to setup a still life that is simple in shapes but also complex in their placement and the rhythms. Tried to be really precise with the placement of those shapes inside the composition checking and measuring all the spaces and silhouettes. To get a “melodical” rhythm of those shapes.”
